The CEHS Instructional Design Center is moving back upstairs to 123 Henzlik Hall after an extended relocation for renovation. Due to the move, the Design Center will be closed on Tuesday, July 29. Please plan accordingly if you need any services on that day. Operations will resume on July 30.
Please be sure to mark your calendars for our annual “Welcome Back Breakfast”. It will be held at the new Innovation Campus this year, starting at 8:30 am. There will be ample university parking and a surprise guest speaker, so, mark your calendar and watch for more information to come a little later this summer.
ou are invited to submit a presentation proposal for the 10th annual Critical Questions in Education Conference to be held in two different locations this year:
• October 13th -- 15th, 2014 at the Brown Hotel in Louisville, Kentucky. Deadline for proposals is July 1st, 2014.
• February 16th – 18th, 2015 at the U S Grant Hotel in San Diego, California. Deadline for proposals is November 1st, 2014.
Again this year, we think we have selected timely and provocative theme questions—though we still welcome proposals on one of our past theme questions. Our 2014/2015 theme questions are:
Why have civil rights era educational legislation and policy in the United States failed our most vulnerable students? How should we address the needs of these students in and out of school?
How is schooling conducted in other countries? What can we learn from the policies, purposes, and practices of education systems—or individual schools—from around the world?
Presenters are encouraged to shape responses to these questions in any way they like. Please see the Call for Proposals for some suggestions on how these questions might be approached.
We hope you will submit a proposal and come join us this year—friends sharing some important talk about some provocative educational questions. We also hope you will share this Call for Proposals with friends and colleagues—and with any list-serves which might accept it.
